Ok, I bought my product from BestBuy, student edition, and I finally got my serial number from identit-e. Now it's telling me to retry over and over again, my internet connection is fine, or try again in 7 days to validate my SN otherwise my software will stop working.
Is it something to do with what type of Windows I have, or what?
There is a Mac and a Windows version, so be sure you have the correct one. Assume the student version will not load as it does not accept your s/n.
Do you have a trial version of CS6 loaded on computer?
I have the Windows version. It says it on the box. No, I haven't clicked the trial version. If it won't accept my SN then, what is there to activate it?
It's my first time using Photoshop so I'm kind of troubled here.
Call Adobe Support tomorrow and let them sort it out. Have them check the serial number to make sure it is valid. If not the copy you has either incorrect s/n assigned for a student version, or it is a counterfeit product. Keep your receipt.
